Great Victory: On November 14, 2012, the California Coastal Commission voted to deny Pacific Gas & Electric's application to conduct seismic testing off the Central Coast of California. By signing our petition opposing the testing, you helped Save The Whales protect thousands of animals from being maimed, deafened or killed outright. It is a great victory for the animals and for everyone one who participated - citizens, environmental and animal organizations, and indigenous people of California.
Now, we need your help to save the vaquita porpoise, the most endangered marine mammal with only 220 remaining in the wild.The only population in the world is found in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico. Gillnets set for fish and shrimp have decimated their population. Little time is left to turn around their slide into extinction. Save The Whales is helping with funds to supply fishermen with GPS units so they know when they have strayed into vaquita-protected territory and for observers on boats to protect vaquita from being caught in fishing nets.
Your support would help to purchase GPS units for fishermen so they know when they have wandered into vaquita-protected territory, and to have boat observers. Save The Whales has given financial support to help in this effort but much more is needed.
